Today, I am sharing a poem that I started several months ago.               DSCN4491

Finishing it, following a “Starry Starry night” prompt by Walt Wojtanik at Poetic Bloomings.

I searched the sky

on that cold December night

looking for meteors or falling stars or bits of celestial sense


For my efforts

I received no recompense

only a skyful of starry tealights

in memory of Newtown’s lost children and grown-ups

who died in the attack.


May their souls rest in peace.

Peace to all on these summery, starlit nights.
